I have an appointment at the Jacksonville clinic in April. I can’t get answers with local doctors. I have so many things going on that I get eye rolls and passed on to another doctor with each appointment. I can’t begin to explain how it feels and I’m sure so many women with autoimmune disorders can relate to. I have an appointment with a rheumatologist and GI specialist. I guess I’m looking for others who have had experiences visiting this location and did they feel it was worth it. I have too many things to explain, but I have positive ANA, centromere, pernicious anemia, etc but there isn’t one part of my body that isn’t going crazy. The last rheumatologist said I had CREST but I honestly don’t think so. Anyway, if you have other things going in like vascular issues related to an undiagnosed condition what do they do because I was told they only do surgery not diagnosing or treatment. So will I just be told to go back to trying to find local doctors who can’t figure me out? I’m so overwhelmed and I would love to speak to someone who has gone through the Rheumatology group and GI group at Jacksonville. My appointments are in a Wednesday will they actually use the rest of the week to figure things out or just say I’ll have to come back at a later date? I know I’m all over the place, but I’m so overwhelmed with my health and I just want help finding a treatment plan that will helo get some of my life back.
